sup][16],[17],[18] However, there is little information in the literature on the correlation between the incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE) and fQRS on ECG in NSTEMI.
The results showed that trimetazidine could relieve the clinical symptoms of patients with UA and NSTEMI, improve ST segment depression and reduce the extent of myocardial ischemia.
The high-sensitivity troponin assays need to be used together with clinical history taking and ECG monitoring to detect NSTEMI, as cardiac troponin levels can also be higher in people who do not have coronary heart disease.
In other words, patients with acute chest pain, no ST-segment elevation, and a discernable rise in hs cardiac troponin have NSTEMI.
Overall, the CURE trial showed that combining clopidogrel and aspirin was superior to aspirin alone in preventing repeat ischemic events in patients with NSTEMI for up to 12 months, and this conclusion was supported by a 2007 Cochrane review.
Determinants of prognostic outcomes like peak CPK, CKMB, serum Creatinine, cardiogenic shock (at presentation), NSTEMI (diagnosed at admission) was noted.
2] Nonstandard abbreviations: hs, high-sensitivity; NSTEMI, non-ST elevation myocardial infarction; TRAPID-AMI, High Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin T Assay for Rapid Rule-out of Acute Myocardial Infarction; ACS, acute coronary syndrome; CAD, coronary artery disease.
Methods: Forty two cases above 75 years old, diagnosed with high-risk on NSTEMI, were selected in cardiology department of Xinxiang central hospital.
ACS refers to any constellation of clinical symptoms that are compatible with acute myocardial ischemia and for easier understanding can be divided into STEMI, NSTEMI and UA.
